, no service, no "thing" not even a movie this these guys made for america and they're making billions. what's wrong with capitalism? it's so departed from production. we does capitalism exist, apart from production? >> well first of all, there is a reason for derivative market that makes sense. i mean as my friend john tester will say, there are farmers who need certainty on prices. there are airlines who want to hedge fuel costs. that's a legitimate purpose for a derivative market. these guys have twisted that notion into something that's unrecognizable by just creating these derivatives that are completely synthetic. they're called synthetic because there's nothing there, just so people can bet on them. that's what we've got to rein in. that's what we've got to take care of. >> senator tester, you kept asking this guy today from goldman about how do you create these synthetic -- and you were getting nowhere with this guy. this guy was running around the bend so fast with you. i learned nothing from him. i know you asked the right questions. did you learn anything from this character today

and the shift from the bad economic news to being america's president and issues like afghanistan and things like that? >> the president might be able to shift, but the question is can congress? we have seen a separation where the president's numbers have levelled off and congress's numbers and the leader numbers are continuing to drop. there is an old saying that history never repeats itself. it only appears to for those who don't know the details. the thing is all these elections are different. they all are. the thing about it is for example, in 1994, unemployment was a little over 6%. a little under 5%. in this economy it's there and unemployment will not get better, but it's projected to basically stay there through the end of this year. >> you have the disquiet about the politics plus bad economic situations, right? we will compare it to reagan. back then we had concern about the economy. are you saying they weren't as concerned about the politics? >> in 1982 and you and i were both on the hill at that point. the democrats didn't have a full team of candidates because six months before
